The VLL in the Dominican Republic is a non-profit founded last year resulting from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society benefit at the Juan Marichal Golf Classic 2012 at the Metro Country Club in Juan Dolio, San Pedro de Macoris. The VLL had defined its mission as working to raise awareness of these blood diseases in the DR, champion the causes in support of the infected, work towards raising financial support for treatments and therapies and finding ways to improve the quality of life of the patients and families that suffer from blood cancers. They work closely with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in the USA, and are dedicated to finding cures.

With over 300 members in less than one year, the association can be found on face book and other media sites. This year, they will support LLS at the 27th Juan Marichal Golf Classic at the Metro Country Club, and those interested in contributing or working with their group are invited to attend and learn about the different ways that the VLL makes a difference.

We are pleased and impressed with their collaboration, and encourage all to find a way to help this great cause. You can find information on their group at FACEBOOK and other media sites.
